I just walked past a couple of guys talking near the presentation rooms at Moscone West and overheard one say to the other:
“Having a Mac is protection from problems.”
This seems to sum up what people have been telling me all week as I’ve discussed with them my reasons for switching from a PC to a Mac. Even before I came to the MacWorld Expo, I was being told that Macs rarely require tech support and that they have a much lower security risk than PCs.
Of course, even Macs pose some problems. There’s a presentation here at MacWorld in about an hour on how to protect yourself from those risks. I’ll be missing out on it myself because I’m more interested in learning how to make games for the new Mac I’m going to get. But it’s nice to know that just getting one is a step closer to being more secure!
